Ranked with basketball's Michael Jordan and soccer's Pele, hockey's Wayne Gretzky retired from the NHL in April 1999. The center who played with the New York Rangers, St. Louis Blues, Los Angeles Kings, and Edmonton Oilers left the game with 2,857 points, 894 goals, and 1,963 assists. 99: My Life in Pictures traces the Great One's career from playing in his father's backyard rink in Brantford, Ontario, through his unprecedented 21-year pro career during which he rewrote the NHL record book -- breaking 61 NHL records, leading Canada in international competition, and captaining the Oilers to four Stanley Cup titles. With insightful essays and more than 250 images, 99 deserves a place on every sports fan's shelf.

Through over 250 photographs (plus plenty of informative text) - (hockey hero) Wayne Gretzky (in collaboration with John Davidson) tells the whole story about how he (starting out as a young whippersnapper from Brantford, Ontario) went on to become the greatest, most widely-admired NHL hockey player of all time.

Even if you're not much of a hockey fan - "99 - My Life In Pictures" is still well-worth a look at the incredible 21-year career of one of Canada's most notable sports figures, ever.

This book's publication in 1999, of course, coincides with Gretzky's official retirement from the game in that same year.
